Three teens were arrested in connection to a Facebook Live video showing a woman get raped and assaulted by a group of teens, the Gulfport Police Department says.
Police charged 19-year-old Haleigh Alexis Hudson with felony kidnapping and sexual assault after she turned herself in, the Daily Mail reports.
Police also charged 17-year-old Ezzie Johnson with felony kidnapping and Kadari Fabien Booker, 17, with kidnapping and sexual battery.
On Tuesday, police received a call that a 23-year-old woman was recorded being raped on the social media network.
According to the Daily Mail, Hudson and Johnson forced the woman to perform oral sex on a man before Hudson brutally beat her.
The video was removed from Facebook but another copy of the video was reposted and got around 48,000 views.
“I can’t help but be disturbed by the incredible numbers of shares and views of this crude and despicable event,” Gulfport Police Chief Leonard Papania said.
“We videotape pain and suffering, then we share it and then we view it over and over.”
